About Jane Makris

Alex(Greek) and Jane(English) are the owners of this lovely spacious villa which nestles in the picturesque hills close to Corfu Town. The villa was built as a family home where time could be spent away from the mass tourism and somewhere to truly relax in beautiful natural surroundings. Alex has recently retired as a General Manager of one of the island's largest hotels and fully understands the importance of always trying to offer complete guest satisfaction.

Being a family home, guests can enjoy the personal touches which makes the villa feel very 'homely' rather than a rental property. Throughout your stay we are always available to help with any requirements and it is our wish for all our guests to have a wonderful holiday.

Jane Makris purchased this villa in 2004

Beautiful house which was spotlessly clean. The best pool we've ever had - very clean.

  • 5 of 5

Alex was a fantastic host - very kind and helpful and keen for us to feel at home. He had left fruit, cheese, milk, bread and wine for our arrival which was great as we arrived late in the evening. The village was quiet and had a traditional bakery nearby which we loved. We enjoyed eating on the different terraces and found it easy to cook as the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Having the table tennis was a bonus and we enjoyed playing board games in the evening. We were sorry not to have met Jane but hopefully next time we stay we will! All directions we were given were clear and correct and the villa is easy to get to from airport . Thank you Alex and Jane for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

A characterful Greek villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this comfortable villa which felt like a home away from home. It was great for our family as the teenagers could have their own space as the villa itself was over 3 floors, not counting the pool area. Fantastic views, different from each terrace. Location was perfect, a lovely breeze on a hot day. We loved the bakery which was just a short walk up the road and had fresh warm bread and pastries for breakfast each morning. Lovely country walking from the front door with a walkers cafe en route. Jane and Alex were so helpful to us before and during our stay. We can’t thank them enough.

Parfaite villa à Corfou

  • 5 of 5

Très belle villa dans un petit village de montagne facile d'accès. Jane et Alex sont des hôtes vraiment charmants. Alex veille discrètement mais personnellement à ce que tout soit parfait et est toujours prêt à vous aider pour quoique ce soit. Tout est fait pour que l'on se sente comme chez soi dans cette très belle maison très bien aménagée et très propre où tout fonctionne parfaitement (wifi, climatisation, nombreux appareils ménagers, TV (en Grec!), lecteur DVD...) . Plein d'attentions sont disséminées dans toute la maison ( frigidaire bien garni à l'arrivée, plein de produits de toilette dans la salle de bain, produits anti-moustiques, lessives etc...).La literie est très bien. La maison est sur 4 niveaux donc pas mal d'escaliers à parcourir... En fait il n'y a qu'une seule vraie salle de bain mais 3 WC. Il y a un garage intérieur mais nous avons préféré utiliser la place réservée à l'extérieur beaucoup plus commode. Les parties extérieures sont superbes. le jardin est très joli et très bien entretenu. La piscine est extra, jolie et très propre avec une douche à côté . Les transats sont parfaits! La vue est magnifique!!! . La plage la plus proche (Benitses) est sans intérêt pour se baigner, les plages situées à l'Ouest sont toutes à environ 30 minutes de routes assez sinueuses ( comme presque partout à Corfou!) mais sont superbes et l'ambiance varie de l'une à l'autre. Le GPS est quasi obligatoire à Corfou où les routes sont très mal indiquées. Le petit restaurant situé à 2 km est très sympa et très "local". L'excursion d'une journée en bateau sur les îles de Paxos et Antipaxos vaut le coup.

Wonderful, private villa with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Jane and Alex's villa. It is very private and has the most gorgeous view. The house is comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Jane and Alex are very gracious and hugely kind hosts. When our daughter fell and cut her chin and needed a doctor, Alex arranged an appointment and then accompanied us to ensure we found it easily, and made sure the doctor looked after us properly! The information they provide in the house is very helpful, giving ideas of where to go, eat, shop, and they even give step by step pictures helping guests to find their way in the small Corfu roads. We absolutely loved this house, will definitely be back, and highly recommend it!

Amazing views, great villa, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful villa built on three levels, it is very spacious and well presented. Outside is a great pool and sunbathing area, with the most stunning view beyond and there are sun terraces on all levels of the villa to take advantage of it. The games area at the top (with table tennis and football) was a great hit with my youngest. Jane and Alex were really nice, eager to help with directions to places to visit and even posted back some things we accidentally left behind! Definitely the best villa we've booked with owners direct so far.
